 LIZ DOTESIO (Course Reference: 11/06/18/LD) £125

Sketch to finished painting in Soft Pastels or Oils

This course will show you "where to begin" and "what to leave out" and how to turn your sketches and photographs into a finished painting. Using your reference as a springboard-not to be copied slavishly but to be seen as an inspiration for what comes next. We will explore families of colour, creating space and perspective by the colours and composition we choose. If anyone is interested in slight abstraction ...then we'll have a go! The individuality of each students work is to be celebrated and with that in mind, we should see some exciting results by tea time.
